How To Cut Your Own Hair And Not Regret It Later!

Okay, let us be clear here for a second. Cutting your own hair is not the brightest of the ideas. Well, not unless you have the right accessories and know what you are doing. Even after that, you need lots of practice and precision. There are so many things that can go wrong. That being said, it is not something completely unusual. And you can definitely do it at your home. You can start small by trimming your hair and cutting some bangs and then go in with some layer or bob. Sound exciting? But only after getting some professional advice and watching tutorials (and we are not talking about the funny TikTok videos). If you are ready to take on this journey, we are ready to show you how. But before that, some important tips.

What You Should Know Before Cutting Your Hair Yourself

  • Kitchen scissors won't work when it comes to cutting your hair. Get a pair of sharp shears to make your work easy and get you as close as possible to a professional cut.
  • For the first-timers- take it slow. Whenever you are cutting your hair, cut a few inches less than you think you want. You can always cut more to get the desired length.
  • Wet cut or dry cut? To put it simply, if you have straight hair, dampen your hair and if you have curly or wavy hair, keep it natural.
